Littlest Hobo, The (Series) (1963-1965)

Littlest Hobo, The
Roaming through Canada in search of adventure and occasional stopping places made the Littlest Hobo a Canadian vagabond. The Littlest Hobo starred London, the great German Shepherd dog. All the filming ranged across Canada for appropriate episode locales. Hobo lived up to his name, going from one city or location to the other, never content to stay in one place or to serve one master. As a result, he not only saw the world, but enjoyed many adventures, from gold seeking with old prospectors to helping publicity-seeking young singers. Hobo got involved in their dreams and their realities, and with each one he helps them to find a way through a crisis.

Original Broadcaster(s): CTV

I liked the episode with Megan Follows. I think it was a two part episode with lots of explosions.
I was in an early 60's episode in which I played one of the students in a school bus rescue from a river. The episode was shot north of Peterborough Ontario. I met the McCowans and London and his/her standins. Very intelligent dogs.
Original series was better than the 70's version.

Maybe it was the theme song; whatever it was, it was childhhood 1960's magic.

I hope they (The Powers That Be) bring this show back, in a big way, soon.
This one of the classics...

When I was little, I saw this show on CBC... Pretty nearly, the whole series, in rerun...
It was this dog breed, besides Ace the Bathound of DC Comics's Batman Family that put a German Shepherd
on my wishlist for many years...
Not to mention, Krypto The Superdog...

I think these original Hobo shows were somehow a little better quality as far as the writing and acting was concerned. I even liked the theme song better. Maybe it was just because these shows made a great first impression on me.
Just wondering if these shows are still available anywhere to view. Either on DVD or on the net.
